Magic in your pocket! Buy Selma for the holidays :)

Are you looking to lift some hearts this holiday season? Today is small business Saturday–and hey, every day is a great day to support small businesses! As an independent author, I have the pleasure of sharing my heart with you on my terms. And drumroll please, to that end, I am sharing the moment when I first saw Selma in book form:

Any tears? Well, I had some when I watched it! YOU have been with me on this journey and it’s been filled with joy and hurdles and delights. THANK YOU!

If you’d like to purchase a signed copy of Selma, here’s how!


Send me an email at with the best mailing address and whether you’d like your signed copies ($12 each) personalized. If shipping in the U.S. and you’re not rushed, I’m offering a flat rate of $4.00 for shipping and handling for 1-4 books. If you’re rushed, I can use U.S. Priority Mail for $9.30 for a padded envelope which can fit up to 3 books. Or if you’d like 10 books shipped to one place, the cost is $10 per book and $10 flat rate (non-rush media mail) shipping. Remember your local librarians and teachers for gifts as well!


I take Venmo and PayPal and can also invoice you so you can purchase with a credit card or Apple Pay.
